From what I've gathered, he did a few shows with Phil and Friends, and was originally supposed to be the guitarist for The Other Ones.

From http://www.gdforum.com/too/toorevue.html

"Providing perhaps the most entertainment for the Internet gossip mongers at rec.music.gdead was finding out who was playing guitar. Up until a few weeks ago, the band had tapped Stan Franks, guitarist for the David Murray Octet, to go out on the Furthur Tour this summer. After a few shakedown gigs with Phil Lesh and Friends, the rumor mill began buzzing that Franks was out, and a number of guitarists were being auditioned. Topping the list of names was Zero's guitarist Steve Kimock, but soon it seemed as though he was out, and relatively unknown guitarist Mark Karan was in. The net buzzed with rumor and innuendo, and we were told officially to just wait and see who showed up. Well, as it turns out, both Steve and Mark played guitar. Mark primarily played a Les Paul most of the evening, and Steve alternated between his big jazz box and a Strat with some time spent on lap steel and a heavy-metal styled axe. Mark stood and swayed all night, while Steve primarily sat on a stool, occasionally venturing onto his feet at slow turtle-speed."

I asked some band members from The Other Ones about him since he only played at the first Other Ones show (6/4/98). They pretty much said that he was great in the studio for rehearsals but pretty much froze on stage at the first show.
